Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 100
Who’s ready for the weekend? I sure am! I am ready to start my new year’s resolutions and make this year better than the last.
Besides the stormy weather and dramatic rain, 2023 has been a good year.
I have lots of fun blog posts planned for the upcoming year that I can’t wait to show you!
In the meantime, browse below the top 30 crafts that I have learned to love to make.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Personal Note from Janine
Rain and more rain are forecasted!
It’s been raining cats and dogs over here in Northern California.
Yes, I’ve been digging trenches, cleaning clogged rain gutters, and bracing for the five inches of rain we received on Saturday.
But, somehow, despite this atmospheric river (don’t you love these new weather terms?) I made these pretty crafts.
And since the days are wet and dark, I’ve been focusing on flowers and cheerful projects.
Flowers are the best medicine for our dark and wintery days.
This time of year triggers my need for pretty things.
But in the meantime, we are bracing for another weekend storm. Oh boy, here we go again.
Stay safe, warm, and dry this weekend!
